Greta Brat is Lithuanian digital 3D artist, Greta Brat. Her surrealist works blur and explore the boundaries between fantasy and reality, and usher the viewer into a place of visual escapism. During our interview, she shares her reasons for making NFT artwork and how NFTs have propelled her artistic career during the last six months.
Art has always been a part of my life, but not the main activity. Before quarantine, I worked with various NGOs, youth exchange programs. But when quarantine began all these activities were closed, and I got a chance to focus on art. I started learning every day, and I’m very happy with what I accomplished so far due the fact I opened 3D software for the first time ten months ago.
It’s pushing me forward. It gives me motivation to keep learning everyday. I’m feeling like I’m growing as an artist together with the crypto art scene. It opened the door not only for NFT art, but also for new friendships and collaborations. It’s an honour to be a part of this, where artists are recognised, celebrated and given the opportunity to create beyond their wildest dreams!
I call it visual escapism. My goal is to create a mental rest stop – a place for myself and others to escape into and to have hope. I’m interested in blurring and exploring the boundaries that exist between fantasy and reality. Inviting people into a place which might not exist, but one that you can believe in.
